Portraits For Purpose is a charity auction established to increase awareness for modern painting and its functionality and benefit charities making a difference around the world. The event will feature a silent auction of original paintings of iconic figures by New York City artist Tyler Loftis. Using the image and influence of these subjects, Portraits for Purpose will showcase the impact art can have on a community, big or small, while bringing awareness to the art and functional application of painting.
Portraits For Purpose is honored to partner with several leading charities including Help USA, Street Soccer USA, The Heart Fund, Wellness in the Schools and the Jonas Salk Legacy Foundation. 100% of the proceeds from each painting will be donated to the subject's charity of choice.
We welcome you to join us at the inaugural event of this annual charitable initiative on November 14, 2018, at the Bowery Hotel. All paintings will also be available for auction via online auction platform Paddle8, with the auction opening on November 1 and lasting through November 14.
